An FBI agent investigates the site of the shooting at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, U.S., November 7, 2017.

LOS ANGELES - Police are investigating an off-duty FBI agent&39;s apparently accidental shooting of a man when the agent did a backflip at a Colorado night club, local media reported on Sunday.

A video obtained by local television stations shows the lanky male agent -- a crowd off to his side -- putting in some energetic dance moves before executing his backflip.

Unfortunately, the move was less of a crowd-pleaser than intended when his gun fell out of his trousers.

The agent couldn&39;t catch it in time before it went off and shot a man in the lower leg.

The shooting victim was recovering in hospital from non-life-threatening injuries, the local ABC television affiliate said.

The agent was taken to police headquarters and then released to an FBI supervisor.
